Topping off the production was three-time Grammy winner, Tre Nagella (Lady Gaga, Blake Shelton, Snoop Dogg) who co-produced and mixed the 240 tracks per song. When the project came to final fruition, the efforts resulted in 5 #1 Billboard hits, along with 11 different placements on various Billboard chart categories and numerous industry awards.
“Symphony of Sinners and Saints: Volume II” is currently in production, which will be comprised of the same line-up of musicians as before but include additional guitar talents such as Nuno Bettencourt (the band Extreme), Nita Strauss (Alice Cooper), and other musical icons, whose names are soon to be released.
An epic multimedia visual and audio experience with an all-star band and massive symphonic production, selling out legendary venues like Carnegie Hall. During the shows, Kitt weaves in powerful stories behind the music and shares incredibly moving experiences. This concert experience has been described by attendees as moving, powerful, and even life changing as people experience so many powerful emotions during the journey of the show.
Kitt’s 2018 release “Midnight in Macedonia” was recorded in Skopje, Macedonia with the Macedonian Orchestra and Choir. The album garnered numerous awards, his first million streams, and served as the impetus to his popular live shows.
A largely self-taught musician, Kitt started on horns in his young teens, but transitioned to keyboards and synthesizers. At 16, he had his first song on the major market radio stations in his home state of Oklahoma. This was the seed to many years of writing, recording, and touring. Although, he recorded several projects, he didn’t record his first solo album until “Cinematic Chaos” which was released in 2014. This is where began working with various orchestras and choirs in the US and eastern Europe.
Kitt is also a multi-genre producer and works with a wide range of other artists.
